NEWS: Thor To Go Into Production in January...
Oh Twitter, how easily you break news.
So, basically, over on their Twitter, Production Weekly said that Marvel Studios is set to begin principal photography on Thor, sometime in January. Hopefully, in the run up leading up to principal photography starting, we may be able to get a hold of some production materials, and maybe even a script. However, all we know now is this.
- Kenneth Branagh is helming the project
- Script is written by Mark Protosevich (with alleged revisions by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz
- The movies plot is basically this: The movie’s story sees the god of thunder Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions re-ignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
- Chris Hemworth is starring in the titular role
- Odin will be played by Anthony Hopkins
- Natalie Portman is Jane Foster, nurse to Thor’s alter-ego, Donald Blake
- Loki will be played by Tom Hiddleston
- Jaimie Alexander and Stellan Skarsgard are also in the cast.
- Production will kick off in L.A. in January, and then will move to New Mexico in March, and should be in the can by April, if all goes well. Expect SOMETHING to be seen at Comic Con, if not earlier.
